    Hey dudes,

    My girlfriend and her father have recently completed both Halo and Halo 2, each in co-operative split-screen mode and each in not much more than a day(!!). And they've played the co-op split-screen portion of 007:Everything Or Nothing. And now they're dying for more action. Criteria: 1st or 3rd person shooter, game must offer co-op split-screen (they're not interested in anything resembling a death-match), must be available on the X-Box. Any suggestions? A version of Timesplitters, perhaps?

    Thanks! And cheers.

    DS.


    Edit: Perhaps my criteria are too narrow. Any suggestions do not neccesarily have to be split-screen, but they must be co-operative in play. Games are played with one console, connected to a single 27" TV. Thanks again.

    TimeSplitters 2 or TimeSplitters: Future Perfect would fit the bill quite nicely. They're both great games (Future Perfect more so), and funnier than hell. TS2 can be had really cheep and I would expect the prices on TSFP to continue to drop. Another thing I should mention is that the storyline directly continues from game to game.

    David, thanks! Duh like...the Timesplitters series is co-operative? A review I read made no mention of this aspect of play, which, as I indicated, is key to my needs. Cheers.

    Um, Yes... [​IMG] I've played co-op on both.

    See the review of TS2 here.

    How about Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory?
    It has a 2 player coop mode, although, it's more a stealth based game than a straight shooter.

    My great thanks to both of you fellows. Richard, I'm afraid my gf and her dad both have trigger-fingers far too itchy for the Splinter Cell series, so Timesplitters 2 and Timesplitters: Future Perfect it is, then!! Thanks again fellas, and cheers.

    Stubbs the Zombie is based on the Halo engine and is co-op. It's also pretty darn funny.
